Wow! What an exciting and nerve-wracking story. I was reading this book late last night and had to put it down at one point because I was getting too nervous about what was going to happen!
Ella Jackson and Josiah Witherspoon are very strong people who have both been through extremely traumatic experiences. These events have shaped them into the people they are, but also weigh heavily on them as they try to navigate their way through life. I really liked Josiah and Ella’s characters. And Ella’s son, Robbie, was such a wonderful addition to the story and so realistic in his response to the various good and bad situations that arose.
I loved the tension in the book…not knowing what was going to happen around the next curve. I also really enjoyed the character and relationship growth that took place in both Ella and Josiah. The way they relied on God to help them navigate through their past issues and move forward was a good reminder of how we all should lean on Him for all things. (5 stars)
I would like to express my appreciation to the author for the complimentary copy of this book that I received in exchange for an honest review.
